Know what you are going through. Bush fires are also a danger for us living in S. Africa, especially when we so badly need rain. Stay safe
I'm sorry that you do. I didn't really understand what it was like until this. I've read about all the fires that are endured over the world, but you don't truly get a clear picture (or a smoky one either) until you are sitting in the midst.
I'm so sorry that you all have to go through this! Praying for safety and good health and to be find some calm in this fire storm.
Thank you so much for your prayers. God hears them.
We can sure relate to your fears and worry Jerrilyn.
Bushfires are far too commonplace here and just last week I had to phone my brother to see if he was safe as fires raged all around his home.
We always worry when we see the bushfires flaring up in the States as we know only too well how difficult they are to contain. Stay safe dear friend, our prayers are with you all.
Thank you. I've gotten a new appreciation for what you all go through. Some nights being afraid to sleep. Thanks for the prayers.
Knoxville area is bad too. I thought there were new fires yesterday, but it was just all the smoke that settled in the valley! Hubby wearing a mask when he goes outside to work in the yard! Our beautiful mts. are burning. I heard on the news they had arrested 2 people here in TN for arson. Praying for all the south that's having fire issues!!
I'm glad he's being careful. I'm keeping my grandchildren inside. My little 6 yr old boy is about to lose his mind. I'm having to be very creative.
I'd heard on the news about the arrests. I can't even think why anyone would want to do something like that.
Yes, we have smoke here also. I have not been in the yard for days except to walk to the mail box and back. I may loose my lilac bush and oak leaf hydrangea bush due to the drought. I remember last week people were posting of loosing well established plants. Kay
I've been saving bath water to water my indoor plants. The ones outside will have to wait. :(
I hope your plants are sturdy. I just heard that we are not expected to get any significant rain until the end of December.
Just got my water bill and I topped out , but I don't know how people who have sprinkler systems afford this. My bill was triple for watering. I hate to see my beloved plants die.
Praying. Hopefully it will rain soon. Please stay save.
Thank you. We are trying. I'm worried about a lot of people I know with breathing issues anyway.
Positive thoughts coming your way and those dealing with the fire must be very tired so they need extra positive thoughts. Hope you stay safe
Thank you. We are working on it.
My prayers go out to all those affected by fire and earthquake.
Thank you so much.
Tragic...here in California, we don't even have a "fire season" like we use to...they consider fire season all year long now...we have been in a severe drought in So. California for over six years now...and with the high winds we get...fires are truly uncontrollable and wild!
I guess I never realized how scary and serious fires of this magnitude truly are.
prayers for you all, hope the rain will fall very soon, stay safe , hugs
Thank you so much. Hugs gladly accepted.
Right with you dear. No fires in this area but beginning to see the smoke coming from a couple of areas, Ga and Tenn & South Alabama. Been praying for rain now for sometime.
I hope the heavy smoke misses your area I have faith our prayers will soon be answered.
Oh! my Jerrilyn, I feel for you. Here in Australia we have dreadful bushfires and when we see America having them we know exactly what you are going through. Prayers for rain are being sent and also for all the personnel who fight them. Love Chris
Thank you Chris. This is my first time to be near and so affected by them. I've gained a new sympathy for those who must deal with this frequently.
Hugs and be safe!
Thanks, we are doing everything those in charge are asking of us.
My heart and prayers go out to you and all involved. These fires have been burning awhile and so many are endangered by them. Arson is such a serious matter. Please be safe, use masks, whatever it takes to protect yourselves. Keep us informed. I think prayers are going to be needed for a while.
I think you are right. The Rough Ridge fires have been burning for weeks now. The 300+ acre within 5 miles of my home is now out, but it was put out a week ago, too. This is one believed to be started by an arsonist.
Prayers send ! I hope everything will be soon under control.
Seems the world is upside down at the moment - our weather pattern is also havoc at the moment with floods, thunderstorms and wind in certain areas but drought over the dams that supply household water. Our electricity seems to be a problem with the weather and we are facing outages sometimes even a day or two at a time. At least we do not have fire warning in the area where we live. That must be terribly fearful. My opinion is that what you are asking for is exactly the solution to all these problems - prayers. Will keep you in mine too. Stay safe.
Best place to be (in your prayers). Thanks for adding yours.
Oh my goodness. I haven't been watching the news lately. I live in East Tennessee. Prayers be with you and your family. God Bless....
I'm sure you are in or will be in the smoke area. Thanks for your prayers.
